VSCmdShell v0.8 Source Code Posted in the Workspace

If you would like to contribute to the source you should sign up to be a member of the workspace and you can grab the live source code. After joining the workspace I would recommend using the standalone tool for working with the workspace source control. Here are the notes for this source release:



  • The solution files are labeled as *2003 or *2005 and will open the correct set of projects/files depending on the version you are working with.
  • Connect200X.cs and CmdTextBox200X.cs are currently version specific.  In the future only the connect.cs file will be.  It’s a bug that the CmdTextBox class is. 
  • In VS2003 you will have to build the VSUserControl Host project and re-add the generated tlb as a reference to the main systemwin addin class library.
  • Also, in VS2003, you will need to build and run the setup program once before debugging to correctly configure the registry.
  • For both releases you should remember that you have to set the debug options to “Start external program” and point it to the devenv.exe that you are working on. 

I’m sure I’ve missed something obscure I do to work on this project. If you have problems feel free to ping me.  Happy Coding!

    Can you post the code somewhere else? It appears That GotDotNet is down, and I’m really interested in getting your tool.

    I updated the links. GDN changed thier link structure and didn’t add forward links.

    Hi, Josh.

    Any time frame on when VSCMDShell will be ready for v2.0.50727?  Great tool, especially for pre-compiling web sites now.

    Lol – HD.  I could probably whip up a working version in a few hours… I’ll try and get that done in the next couple of weeks. Beyond that I plan to publish a real update before august with actual feature improvements.
